The MMA fighter could face seven years in jail - the maximum sentence for his charge of felony criminal mischief - following his violent rampage in Brooklyn. His next court date was set for June 14. And so McGregor made a decision to hype up this potential fight - like a pro wrestling promoter would - by bum rushing the Barclays event, causing a scene that climaxed with him shattering the window of a bus containing a bunch of UFC fighters.
The whole event was captured on video showing McGregor tossing a trolley and other items at the bus.
UFC president Dana White vehemently condemned McGregor's actions after the incident, even calling it the "most disgusting" thing he was ever seen in the company.
Earlier this week, Dana White finally confirmed that Conor McGregor would be stripped of his UFC lightweight title, but unbeknown to MMA fans around the world, it would be the start of a insane three days leading up to UFC 223. But not in this situation.
The Irishman has been facing backlash after his already infamous attack on a bus carrying UFC fighters at the Barclays Center in NY. "You don't get my help on this one". He was scheduled to fight Saturday night against Anthony Pettis, but has since been deemed unfit to take part in the event by the New York State Athletic Commission and the UFC medical team.
Whatever the case, McGregor, accompanied by Lobov and a large entourage, launched a one-man attack on a bus full of UFC fighters.
Police said McGregor threw a hand truck at a bus causing minor injury to a person on the bus. "We'll get back (to Las Vegas) and focus on Conor McGregor".
He last fought in a UFC bout in November 2016, when he defeated Eddie Alvarez to win the lightweight belt.
Two fights were canceled as a result of the incident.
McGregor responded to the move by tweeting on Thursday morning: "You's'll strip me of nothing you's do nothing c****". "Do you want to be in business with Conor McGregor right now?"
McGregor, a former lightweight and featherweight champion in UFC, has become one of the stars of his sport, best known for his antics and bravado leading up to fights.
